Yesterday’s Winner of the $50 cash from TopCashback is Jane with the tip Since I like to cruise, I do not want to be constantly checking the cruise website to see if my fare has gone down. I simply go to www.cruisefish.net and for $1, they will monitor my sailing for price drops. We’ve seen solutions to monitor prices for other travel options but now we’ve got one for cruises. I’d love feedback that anyone else has too. Jane, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you your cashback.
Thanks to everyone that submitted a deal / tip, keep them coming!
Citi Prestige® Card
- Annual Fee: $450 fee
- Foreign Fees: No
- Card Type: Bank
The increase to 50,000 ThankYou points for the Citi Prestige card may be a signal that Citi wants back in the game, big time. The sign-up bonus has just been increased to 50K points from the previous 30K offer. An added benefit is a $250 annual air travel credit each calendar year -- so, if you sign up in April, you'll receive the credit this year, and again in January of next year -- which more than covers the $450 first year fee. When you add in lounge access for you and up to two of your guests, you’ve added another $400+ in value. One more benefit worth mentioning is the fourth night free for any four-night hotel stay booked through Wagonlit Travel. And lastly is the $100 statement credit when you sign up for Global Entry and pay for it using the Prestige card. Don’t forget the ever-growing number of airline transfer partners that work with the ThankYou points program.
